Sure, here's the recipe from my site:
1 pound fresh sausage ( I prefer Tennessee Pride or Rudy's Farm )
3 tablespoons shortening (or bacon drippings)
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
3 cups milk
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
Here's what you need to do:
In a large heavy skillet (preferably cast iron), brown the sausage breaking it up with a spatula over medium high heat. Do not drain.
Add the shortening, flour, salt and pepper.
Cook stirring constantly until flour begins to brown.
Slowly add milk while continuing to stir.
Bring to a boil, reduce heat to a simmer and cook for one minute stirring occasionally. As the gravy cools it will thicken so if you want thinner gravy, add a little more milk
Cut the biscuits in half and pour the gravy over the biscuits.
